One Wounded in Oregon School Shooting
Thursday, February 23, 2006

ROSEBURG, Ore. — A young gunman opened fire on a 16-year-old at school early Thursday, hitting the teen four times, then held the gun to his own head after police cornered him, authorities said.

Police spokesman Sgt. Aaron Dunbar said the shooter appeared to be a student. He was arrested shortly after the attack at Roseburg High School.

The school went into lockdown after the shots were fired about 7:45 a.m.

The victim, whose identity has not been released, was hit three times in the torso and once in the elbow, said Vic Fresolone, CEO of Roseburg's Mercy Hospital.

He "is doing very well, better than can be expected considering the bullet wounds," Fresolone said.

The suspect was not immediately identified and no motive for the shooting was disclosed.

A nearby elementary school in Roseburg, a southwest Oregon town of about 21,000 residents, also was locked down as a precaution.

Just another example of why parents should hug their kids and teach them firearm responsibility.
